Sizing details

Unsure which size to choose? Not sure it will fit right on your mailbox, door, keepsake box, etc? We recommend cutting a piece of paper to the stated dimensions so you can visualize how the plate will look once in place. You can also request a mock-up to see how your text will fit on the plaque.

Care instructions

All plaques are made from quality brass or copper without lacquer. This will allow your plaque to attain a wonderful warm patina over time. However if you wish to lessen the intensity of the patina or bring it back to its original color, simply scrub with a solution of lemon juice and salt. Note that use of non-brass or copper screws is not advised, particularly if the plaque will be exposed to humid or wet conditions, due to risk of corrosion. (Note: placement on a metal box is ok as it would only affect the unseen side). Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the care and maintenance of your plaque.

Brass Screws / Non-brass screws & bolts

All plaques drilled with holes come with brass screws suitable for attaching your plaque to a wood surface. If you wish to use your own screws or bolts, it's advised to use brass or copper only since use of other metals may cause corrosion if the plaque is kept outside or in a humid / wet area.

Attaching the Plaque

Plaques can be adhered to most surfaces using a strong neoprene adhesive. If you purchase a plaque drilled with holes, 2 wood screws will be included with your order. If you need to attach to a surface where wood screws will not suffice, we advise neoprene adhesive instead, particularly if your plaque will be outdoors or somewhere humid.


Delivery times are estimated based on normal mail flow. Holidays, weather and other issues may cause delays. Have a tight deadline? Contact us to discuss prior to purchase.
